I-130 Cover letter mistake. Please help!

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm filing for my family based green card concurrently I-485 and I-130 (married to US citizen). I sent my package out yesterday via USPS. However after sending my package, I discovered that my last minute changes on the cover letter of I-130 package has a wrong form name. On the letter, it says "Nature of the Submission: I-485 Original Submission". It was supposed to be "I-130 Original Submission". I copied and pasted and forgot to changed the text. Silly mistake I know.

Anyone sees that as a big problem for my application? The next line on the letter did say "Enclosed please find my Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative and supporting documents.". I'm worried it will be misleading.

Any help or thought would be appreciated.

Thanks for the reply NancyNguen. I just went throught your time line and the interview experience. I'm from "south Vietnam" too. Hopefully, our interview will go smoothly. My wife is Caucasian. I hope they're not going to separate us.
